    I told you so. Happy? Think you saved anybody lots of money? Think you reduced the role of government? On saving money, US markets dropped $1.2 trillion today, and worldwide it was more like $3.5 trillion. On the role of government, the Fed announced $630 billion in new central bank credits today, half of it to central banks abroad. And oh, the FDIC guaranteed to Citigroup all losses beyond the first 13% on Wachovia's mortgage book, which is around $300 billion. And it won't be remotely enough, and will probably need to be doubled tomorrow. When are you going to...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- The government on Friday acknowledged problems in processing disaster loans after the Gulf Coast hurricanes in 2005, including loan approvals without proper paperwork and inadequacies in how damages are assessed. The administrator of the Small Business Administration, Steven Preston, said about 10,000 approved loans lacked proper documents on the borrowers' collateral. In some cases, the documents hadn't been filed with local authorities or checks and forms had mistakes. "The bottom line is that in the gush of work flow that happened, there were 10,000 loans in place where they weren't properly recorded," Preston said.

    CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - A morning walk Monday turned into a dangerous tango with an alligator for one dog owner. Michael Rubin took Jasmine, a 6-month-old golden retriever, and his other dog, a border collie named Frisbee, for a run near a construction site. The puppy ran ahead of Rubin to the edge of a pond, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. Rubin heard the dog cry. When he went to check on her, he saw the puppy's head inside an alligator's mouth. Rubin jumped in the water and started beating the gator with his fist. The reptile refused to let...

    Shock continues to spread throughout the local community as people learn that Mountain View resident and federal Judge James Ware lied about a family murder. When Ware spoke in Los Altos at the Morning Forum Feb. 4, 1997, he brought the audience to tears recalling how he held his dying brother in his arms in a ditch after the boy was shot by a white man in 1963. "I came out of that ditch with a hunger for justice," the Town Crier quoted Ware as telling the audience. "Since that day, I dedicated my life toward equal justice and a...

Despite the treadmill promises, it becomes obvious after a short time here that there are more selections to be made: who gets in with Guido or Fiss, who knows the most people (helps when journal elections happen), who is going to run for office eventually, etc. This is endlessly frustrating, not to mention counter to everything this place claims...
